This domain controller must register its correct IP addresses with the DNS server

    Question

  • Hello 

    I have just ran a Best Practice Analyzer on my Windows Server 2008 R2 Domain Controller, and I'm getting this message 

    I have read both links in the BPA, and also Technet ariticle but I still can't get my head around this.

    Any ideas please?

    Many Thanks.

    Regards,
    John





    Title:
    This domain controller must register its correct IP addresses with the DNS server

    Severity:
    Error

    Date:
    3/16/2017 2:32:32 PM

    Category:
    Configuration

    Issue:
    The Domain Name System (DNS) host resource records for this domain controller's fully qualified domain name currently map to the IP addresses that do not belong to this domain controller. The invalid IP addresses are 101.98.45.29; 101.98.1.35; 101.98.1.45; 101.98.8.3; 101.98.60.73.

    Impact:
    Other member computers and domain controllers in the domain or forest might not be able to locate this domain controller. This domain controller will not be able to provide a full suite of services.

    Resolution:
    Ensure that the DNS Client service on this domain controller is configured and able to register valid host resource records with an authoritative DNS server for the domain.

  • If it is a single DC then the server should not be multi-homed and should have server's own address and 127.0.0.1 for DNS on connection properties and no others such as router or public DNS addresses.

  • Hey Dave

    Its not a single DC but one of five DC's that we have 

    Is the error implying the IP addresses in questions should be removed, or the lack of thereof? 

    Thanks for your response.

  • Probably removed but I don't know the topology or addressing. Since multiple DCs I put server's own address and another DCs address on connection properties. You may have better luck with dcdiag rather than bpa
